When you purchase a web hosting server with the intention to start your personal website hosting company and to resell plans to various people, you may also need to sell domain names, so as to give your customers the option to purchase everything they want for their new website from a single place. To be a licensed registrar involves thousands of dollars along with tons of documentation, so the most convenient solution would be to register for a domain name reseller account with a current registrar company. Your reseller website will be linked to that account via the registrar's API. Employing this type of account has a variety of benefits - all your customers will be able to obtain and to take care of new website names without difficulty; the price of a brand new registration is lower when compared to what you would need to pay as an end customer; also you are able to start reselling without delay. The registrar businesses that provide domain reseller accounts usually ask for a certain amount of money as a deposit.
